Being a Clawdite is one of the greatest blessings a living creature could ever have. Quite fortunate is Zayne, then, that he also had the blessing of being sensitive to the Force.
Clawdites are pragmatic, generally looking out only for themselves. Zayne was no different. He doesn't remember a time with parents, probably the offspring of some Clawdite shapeshifted into a dashing man who impregnated some cheap Twi'Lek broad. He doesn't know, and doesn't seem to particularly care. All Zayne remembers is needing to survive on his own.
He quickly figured out the whole shapeshifting thing. It wasn't pleasant, but it allowed him to get in good with certain gangs. He would get roughed up, and also rough up others. He would lie, he would steal, he would do whatever he could to get ahead.
One day, once he was old enough, he realized he didn't need to do the whole combat thing. He tailed a noble for a while, shifting into other people to understand how he behaves. He figured out his general routine, personality, interests, etc. Then Zayne offed him and replaced him.
Suddenly Zayne had money, a lovely wife, and safety. But Zayne wasn't satisfied. He repeated this tactic, spending months in a location before moving on. He spent money frivolously, always expecting to make more later. But still, something was lacking.
Then Zayne met Yi'ala. Yi'ala was an incredible woman who knew exactly what Zayne was and swayed him into spending time with her. She was cunning, ruthless, and everything that Zayne had ever admired in a person. She said she was a witch, daughter to the daughter of some religious nut named Talzin, and that it was her dark magic that informed her of Zayne. They quickly bonded, forming one of the first real relationships that Zayne had ever cared about.
Yi'ala taught Zayne the arts of assassination, refining his skills and teaching him tactics. She showed Zayne his force sensitivity and taught him ways to use it to enhance his own body. She also showed him great magics, but he was not yet ready to learn.
Yi'ala and Zayne would work together to complete assassinations and make money. This served to teach Zayne and improve his skills. Together, one day, they would hopefully be able to remake the Witches of Dathomir.
Eventually Yi'ala found Cyanokin. Yi'ala was excited to go to this planet, believing that this was going to be the origin of their new clan. Zayne hoped so to. He would go first and begin making moves while she tended to other duties elsewhere in the galaxy.
Help the Witches of Dathomir be reborn.
